Dear Babes
Because this product contains iodine (all seafood and foods obtained from the sea are rich in iodine) it can stimulate your thyroid gland which in turn may increase your basic metabolism IF you have an iodine deficiency. However all table salt used in SA is also fortified with iodine, so you probably don't have an iodine deficiency anyway.
Best regards
